This is a demanding plan for the final 12 weeks before your A-race. It will help you to take you to the next step and finish in the Top-10 of your age group at a big event. There is no such feeling as standing on the podium and qualify for WC or race strong at the WC. This plan will help you to live your dream.

Please make sure, that you get proper sleep during this plan and add some extra massage sessions or physiotherapy to your weekly routine, in order to keep your muscles smooth and prevent injuries. With this plan professional podiums has been reached with athletes who live from racing.

Ironman Champion Astrid Stienen already proofed that she can not only race strong but also be a smart coach. Working together with athletes from all over the world, she will help you to achieve your goals. She not only raced in Kona herself but also helped athletes to qualify for Kona.

This plan is made for ambitious athletes who want to qualify for 70.3 World Champs and fight for a top 10 there. You must already have a solid form and fitness. You should be able to train 15-20h per week. If you find time for additional stretching and massage it will help you with your recovery.

So if you also want to succeed and think we can be a good team. Just get coached by me or buy one of my training plans.

Let's start.
